Airport celebrates Southwest

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Pensacola International Airport is holding a formal inaugural party Monday to mark Southwest Airlines' new daily, nonstop service to Nashville, Tenn., and Houston. The first flight arrives Sunday from Nashville. The airport had courted Southwest for years, and got the airline when Southwest bought AirTran, which had been serving PNS. Southwest chose to keep the Pensacola service.
